Subject: Chicago Summer '83- Night 1
Sort of more of a rushed, yet raw, 80s psychedelic sound. Some lyrical flub/slop on Dupree's- but it's still a treat. Last played 15 shows prior. (Returned in '82 from '78). Mid set Bird song pleases and pops at around 3:30. Early taste of set two psychedlia. Of course by late 80s/early 90s it would find its placement squarely in the set one closer slot, precisely I think to give that set two flavor, stretch out a bit for what's to come.
All in all, this show is a monster, and especially set two. At the risk of hyperbole, this is probably the best, most energetic and raw set in Chicago since the awesome 2/19/73 second two. Set and really the whole show just cooks. To boot, this is possibly the highest quality AUD recording I've ever heard. Excellent Charlie Miller transfer. Check it out!
*Question: how many openers and closers are there in that first set?!
a refined, quality first set and a rocked out set two.

Meaning less fact .... this is the very first hell in a bucket sugaree. I only say this because listening to hartford fall of 84 is said at the bottom of the facts on the show. Many many many buckets sugaree later is a historical fact only. Guess in 84 the Bucket Sugaree could be looked as 1st time they opened show with it, as in this case it closes out the 1st set.
I loved both of these shows. HOT HOT HOT
I am a huge fan of Midwest shows before they became over run with people who were only there to make money. We worked the parking lots to get to the next show, not for bank accounts. Just dawned on me how we parked cars here to make an extra buck. Not as parking attendants either.

Love this show. Jerry made up for muffed lyrics in Sugaree with a blazing version. I love this Scarlet Fire. A bit uneven but the mellow bits are fun, the percussion is nice and the transition into fire is perfect. Another Jerry muff to begin Fire but he again makes it up with one of the better versions I've heard, especially the jam between the first and second verse. Bob must have been chomping at the bit not having sung a song for over 30 minutes of Sugaree and Scarlet>Fire because he comes out blazing on Estimated though the jam is a little too mellow.
The next night was not as good but ending the tour with a semi bust-out Iko encore and pulling off a semi-rare Help>Slip>Franklins was genius and left everybody happy and wanting more.
Oh to be 19 again.
